Miami native and Grammy Award-nominated, international superstar Flo Rida will perform two of his chart-topping tracks, "Good Feeling" and "Wild Ones." Bad Boy Records' newest recruit, Machine Gun Kelly (MGK), will deliver a show-stopping performance of his hit single "Invincible." Both artists' performances will set the stage for WrestleMania XXVIII's highly-anticipated main event match between Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and WWE Superstar John Cena. Flo Rida and MGK join a renowned list of legendary performers that includes Kid Rock, Cee Lo Green, Mary J. Blige, Nickelback, Run-D.M.C., Pitbull, Diddy-Dirty Money and Trace Adkins who have performed at major WWE events.
Flo Rida's "Good Feeling" has become a top-10 hit in 16 countries, reaching Number 1 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart in the United States, and "Wild Ones" has topped music charts in four countries. Both singles are official WrestleMania theme songs and are available digitally.
"Invincible" has been downloaded more than 100,000 times since being released on iTunes, helping MGK earn the title of "Hottest Breakthrough MC of 2011" by MTV. While at Monday Night Raw in his hometown of Cleveland, he was personally invited to perform at WrestleMania by Cena. His debut album, Lace Up, is slated for a summer 2012 release.
